How to Create Winged Asian Eyes

Learn how to create winged Asian eyes from celebrity makeup artist Raychel Wade in this Howcast makeup tutorial.


So I'm going to show you how to do a winged eyeliner. I'm going to use a MAC gel liner, but you can use any gel liner that you have at home, and just a very fine eyeliner brush. Swirl the brush into the product so you have a nice fine tip, just like this. I like to sort of start in the middle and just drag the eyeliner as close to the lash line as possible. Then I work my way back. When you do this you want to drag the brush. You don't want to use the tip, otherwise it's going to look really messy. But if you drag it on its side, it'll give a nice smooth finish. And I just keep working it. I go over and over the line until I get it perfect. Some people are lucky enough that they can do it in the first take but I kind of like to take my time with it.

Then when you get out to the corner you want to create the wing. So very gently, I'm just going to kind of angle it straight up and then bring it back along the eye like this. And then fill in that little triangle so when her eye is open that little wing is just peeking out. It gives it a really, really natural look. I'm just moving on to the other side, again, starting in the middle and dragging it on the side of the brush and then working my way back to the inner corner. You can create an actual winged liner using a fine pointed brush, or if you want to make it a little more dramatic, use a slanted brush, dip it into the product, and just building on this corner make it a little thicker. I'm going to the other side.

Most people have two different shaped eyes, even if it's not that obvious. All it takes is a tiny, tiny amount of differentiation to make your eyes look different when you start applying makeup. That's okay. Just practice makes perfect when it comes to using gel and liquid liners. They can be tricky, but once you start doing it, it really just becomes second nature.

So here's sort of a dramatic winged liner look which works really well on Asian eyes because when you open your eyes, it kind of disappears and little bit and it looks really sexy and sultry.
